    Is there spyware in the app that can record your conversations and take pictures on your camera???

        Everyone has their moments. I know the absolute compression ratio calculations, but so many factors come into play when trying to figure out, dynamic or static compression ratio on an assembled engine. Cam overlap would play a huge role in it. You can bleed off a lot of compression with a cam with a lot of overlap. It really doesn't matter for what we were trying to do, just a question that made me think - it hurt a bit.

          I think that's right.
          What I was trying to say is the compression test pressures dont directly correlate to the high compression. For example an earlier exhaust valve opening will reduce the peak pressure from the 3 or 4 bumps.

              Another nice thing about factory engines - we can just go by the pressures for compression test that are in the FSM.

                Minor progress.
                Helmet now has visor instead of shield.

                Be nice to get it painted white. Keep it a little cooler as well as little more 1960s looking...

                  Pump and battery all mounted up,box hoists and lowers as it should. Fenders,electrical, wheel bearings and brakes. Then paint.
                  Figure 5-6 days more work.

                    Decided to clean the brake dust off the inside of the rims before reinstalling. That might be a first. I can't recall the last time I did that...
                    upload_2019-6-12_17-15-55.png upload_2019-6-12_17-16-57.png

                    Started on the tailpipe project. The muffler and tail pipe clamps came off easy. But its crimped to the muffler really well.
                    I'm not sure I want to keep going down this rabbit hole at this time.
                    upload_2019-6-12_17-24-0.png

                    If I have to cut it to remove it from the muffler and the other tailpipe has more fit issues - then it could tie up the car and the garage.
                    The other tailpipes don't look like they're made to clear the gas tank strap hangers. This one, even if it didn't hang low, is bent so to clear them.
                    If I can't remove either tailpipe without cutting them, probably put this project off 'til winter.

                      Today’s after work project...mulched the front shrub bed. My back is still hollering at me for doing the sod last night, but my wife bought the mulch today and it’s going to rain tonight and tomorrow so better to get it put down now...

                          Figures. Like usual, my wife made me stop before I was done so she could plant the rest of the flowers in the front bed and shrub bed before I could finish. I guess she decided that since I got most of it done faster that she expected I would, she could just expand the project!

                          I think it is the basic difference in thinking between me and her. She sees it as 3 hours work and therefore, I should work for 3 hours. I see it as a project and the faster I get it done, the sooner I can rest. Maybe that’s also the difference between an hourly wage mentality and a salary mentality. She has only ever had hourly wage jobs and I have always had project or salary based jobs.

                              Happy with the progress on trailer.
                              Decided tomorrow i will try to get shifter installed in the ELcamino..
                              No problem, back trailer up to hoist and push car into shop straight onto hoist. Wiggle and jiggle truck around, get ball lined up with coupler, go to crank trailer down.jack is a pos and half-seized.
                              Did i mention no problem?
                              Finally get it straightened away
                              And lower onto ball-nope latch trips and back up it goes. Two hands to operate jack and one to hold latch.
                              No problem, use safety chain and wedge it. Finally!
                              So pull ahead and proceed to back up trailer to shop. Truck and trailer have to be at 45 degrees,as i dont have enough room to back it straight in.
                              Jack knifed. Bumper on car contacted truck and broke my taillight. Doh!
                              No problem, i have spares.
                              Pull ahead and try again,nope hit shop opening.
                              Well this is impossible....
                              No problem, unload it.
                              Pull ahead and drag my winch cable out,hook to hole in frame.
                              Remove wheel chocks and hang ramps on the back.
                              Its higher in the front and will roll off with winch controlling the descent to terra firma.
                              No problem, rolling nicely. Until it gets 1/2 way down ramp. Winch cable is bound up and starts pulling car back up. Ok block wheels, slack cable and untangle cable. Try to slack winch cable and its pulling. Release switch and it wont stop. Unplug it, nope still pulling car back up onto trailer and right to front of trailer.
                              Battery cables smoking and im scrambling to disconnect winch. Thankfully i had gloves on.
                              Had to cut winch cable to release tension,and finally i just pushed car with one foot out the door and other on brake. Yes, the brakes worked.
                              No problem.
                              Wish i had a moral to the story..
                              Wait, there is- previous owner is deceased. Guy bought it from an estate.
                              It’s haunted!!
                              Now how do i appease the spirit that trashed the end of my day, and will there be more??

                              This is a pretty interesting interview about what it took to make it to the moon.
                              Alot of it is about the technological challenges.

                                Spray it with white plasti-dip. It is pretty durable, easy to touch up and you can just peel it off later anytime you want.

                                    My grandfather worked for Martin-Marietta back in the day. He was involved in telemetry stuff on Apollo 11. He had a picture on his 'pool table/radio room' of him and Neil Armstrong . Also had a trophy where he and Sam Snead won a pro-am golf tournament. I thought he was kind of a stud.. He was an asshole, but still kind of studly..

                                      50th Anniversary of Moon landing next month? :D
                                      I was hearing on the radio today the 50th anniversary of Woodstock is not going so well.
                                      Sounded like Watkins Glen will not be the site.
